Plans for the 2016 American Tribute Ride are underway for another successful event to help others serving or have served our country. The committee is happy to announce that this year’s ride will start at Open Road H-D in Fond du Lac and will end at Wisconsin Veterans Center in King on Saturday, the 24th of July. Final plans are still in the works to arrange for two stops along the way to King.
As in the past the committee is planning to donate funds to the following entities: Wisconsin State Firefighters Memorial, Honor Flights, Concerns of Police Survivors, and Veterans Assistance Program at King, WI.
So far this year we have a members of the law enforcement [Officer Ryan Copeland], fire service [Lawrence Millard] and military [Airman Quinn Johnson-Harris] that will be honored.
The committee decided in hopes to increase participation has lowered the cost of participating. For those that wish to pre-register the donation will be $25.00/single bike and $35.00/two-up bikes. Those that register the day of the ride the donations will be $30.00/single bike and $40.00 for two-up bikes. The website and Facebook page will information coming very soon.
